The San Antonio Spurs today announced they have signed guard Melvin Sanders. Per club policy terms of the deal were not released. It's a 10-day contract, sources say.

Sanders was signed on 11/9 after appearing in the Spurs 2005 training camp. The 6-5, 210-pounder played in five regular season games for the Silver and Black and averaged 2.2 points and 2.6 rebounds in 11.6 minutes. He was waived on 11/19.

The 25-year-old Sanders also suited up for the Fayetteville Patriots of the NBA Development League during the 2005-06 season. He averaged 20.6 points and 5.0 rebounds while shooting .639 (39-61) in five games. Sanders posted a season-high 28 points on 11-16 shooting at Little Rock on 1/19.

Sanders averaged 15.6 points, 2.4 rebounds and 1.0 assists in five games with the Spurs summer league team at the 2005 Rocky Mountain Revue. The Oklahoma State product spent the 2004-05 season with the Dakota Wizards of the CBA where he averaged 18.7 points, 5.8 rebounds and 3.0 assists on his way to being selected to the All-CBA Second Team and the CBA All-Defensive First Team.

InsideHoops.com Editor Says: Sanders is a fill-in at the shooting guard spot while Manu Ginobili is out injured with a sprained ankle.
